Not sure how I feel about the whole Knights of Sidonia thing. It is on my watch list, but it being only on Netflix complicates things a bit, as I gave up on it in favor of Crunchyroll. I guess I'll be waiting to see what else happens to this show.

Although it wasn't made crystal clear, I get the impression they will post all the episodes at once. If that's the case, you could probably do another 30 day free trial if you've been away from Netflix long enough.

Spring anime series showing in Summer on Netflix, eh? Hmm....

If they are witholding all the episodes until they can dub them into multiple languages and release them along with the subtitled version then they must realize that almost everyone who is a serious anime fan will have resorted to fansubs by then. Casual anime fans won't realize they are available until it is on Netflix perhaps.

I guess your average Netflix user is accustomed to waiting months or years after Hollywood network television releases to get them but will anime fans do that? I'm not sure. I can't believe people wait so long to watch "Breaking Bad" but I guess simulcasted anime has made me very impatient...

It's been about 3 years since I last used Netflix, so that's a possibility. I doesn't happen as often anymore, but I still get e-mails from them trying to lure me back in.

There are those of us that stick strictly to legal viewing, regardless of the wait. There is also the convenience factor. Even if a fansub site works in the browser on a game console or portable device, it isn't as convenient as using the Netflix app, and it certainly won't be available on a device like a Roku or Chromecast.

Legality aside, for the past several seasons, I've found myself either waiting until a good number of episodes have been banked up, or even until the season has passed to begin viewing. For those I begin before the season ends, once I exhaust the existing episodes and am back to waiting week to week it takes something out of the viewing experience, but at least I can join the discussion at that point.

Frankly, if it wasn't for the possibility of being spoiled and the problem of not being able to join in ongoing discussions about a series, I would probably watch everything after the series was complete. I've found it simply makes for a superior viewing experience.


Even on CR, and with the existence of the topics like this one, there still seem to be a large number of people on CR that have don't appear to have much of an idea on what is coming out for the next season until CR announces it as a simulcast or they stumble across it. It is rather like me and broadcast TV, where unless a series gets a lot of buzz I am typically not aware of it until it pops up on Netflix.

As you know I try to stay legit as well but I guess both of us allow for watching shows that are picked up by NO ONE and watch them elsewhere if we must. I thought I saw you in the Symphogear G threads anyway... I know I was there... But I'm buying the series now so I made up for it :)

Convenience too, I hate having to go elsewhere. The schedule as well, who knows when other places will put stuff up, that was a real pain for Symphogear G. Really, I hate having to go to Funimation for anything, having to use a proxy to legally use Canadian licensed content on Viz, and now we have Netflix in the game again, sigh... I want one stop shopping, all anime on Crunchyroll! But I guess I can't have everything I want.

And I really don't like to wait. So for example I am watching Monogatari SS legally on Daisuki. Some are waiting for it to air here and I applaud them but 5 weeks is just too long for me to wait especially when another legal source is available. I manage to watch 30 simulcasts as soon as I can where my work schedule allows me. It is probably too much but I find if I wait then I never get the time to watch them, just between seasons there is a bit of downtime otherwise I fall farther and farther behind.

I cancelled Netflix a while ago. Not sure I'd get it again for one show, especially if it's a season late. Will I watch Knights at all then? I don't know. That will be a funny case for me. It will be like TheAnimeNetwork which had legal shows before but I didn't feel like subscribing for just 1-2 shows per season at a higher pricepoint than Crunchyroll, even higher than Funimation IIRC.

Since I didn't subscribe to TheAnimeNetwork I waited until Chuunibyo and IS were free past the first episode to watch them there. So I _can_ wait if I must. I just don't like to. I could have gone to fansubs for those shows but I didn't. I really would rather not.

With all the media you import directly from Japan, I don't think anyone but the most stick-up-their-ass moralist would be begrudge you watching the occasional fansub. I've seen people justify it with "I buy a lot of merchandise", but that doesn't necessarily put money in the same pockets that buying the media itself does. I'll also wager that when you do watch a fansub, you have every intention of purchasing the series.

Speaking of Monogatari, that one is another "wait and watch" for me, although thanks to its "arc/recap, repeat" structure, I've been able to hold off on catching up to real time with it. Even if I do, I can always switch to Daisuki and buy more time.

At this point, the only simulcasts I am current on are Valvrave, Arpeggio, Freezing, and Outbreak Company.

As two of those are ending with the next episode, it will be time to pick another couple of series to marathon over a weekend (which seems to be the only time now I can get any serious viewing done).

Yes, every time I watch a show I'm asking myself, "is this good enough for me to rewatch? Good enough to buy? What extras does it come with?" The anime is an ad for itself for me, for the imports from Japan.

Monogatari's arcs mean you just need a few hours to finish one off at least. And strangely it means I can pick and choose if I want to buy all 12 (twelve!!!) discs of Monogatari Second Season or just choose the arcs I want. Got the first arc, Neko Shiro to look good beside Neko Kuro:

And now I know I need to get the two discs of Kabuki at least for the audio commentary and bonus Cds and will probably need Otori and Koi but I just might skip Oni, though it did have some cute scenes... and the audio bonuses will likely reel me in again, they always do.

I must say it was actually fun to marathon Chuunibyou and Infinite Stratos season 1. Once in a while it is nice to find a series I haven't seen and watch all 12-13 episodes at once. I can remember everything that is going on, there are definite advantages. It is one reason why I prefer 1-2 cour series so I can marathon them quickly all at once which I do on rewatches.

Valvrave, Arpeggio, Freezing Vibration and Outbreak Company... good choices! All exciting stuff! But none that I'm buying, unless I have a late change of heart.

I forgot that technically I am watching another current simulcast, Beyond the Boundary (Kyoukai no Kanata Airing), but I've only watched the first couple of episodes thus far. As the last episode simulcasts in only 2 days, unless I suddenly marathoned it tonight, there is little chance I will go "real time" with it.

I'm shopping around for a couple of new additions, but some I know I want to watch like Kill la Kill and the second round of Magi are out for now, due to not yet being even half over.

Unbreakable Machine Doll, Yusibu, Yozakura Quartet - Hana no Uta might be up your alley and are all nearly finished their single-cour seasons.
